|Ok, I am truly in awe of the level of knowledge and experience you all have, but are you pulling rabbits out of hats! I have been to Ellis Island and Castle Garden sites entering every combination of names I could think of and cannot find this 1907 Manifest record on Angelina Pica, even tried Frola. Where did you find this record?|
I located the record on Ancestry by doing a search for Caterina Pica with year of birth as 1892 +/- 2 years. It was one of the first ten records to come up in the search. When I'm searching for someone younger, I do a search for that person under the father's and mother's surname. Fairly often children travelling with their mother will be indexed under the mother's maiden name. Caterina's mother is listed on Ancestry as Augela Pica--a common keying error due to the handwritten documents is to misinterpret an "n" for a "u."
Angela and Caterina are on the Ellis Island site with the surname Sica rather than Pica.
